Hi, people!

I'm back (hopefully for a bit more regular intervals smile ) and I'd like to ask your opinion on something.

I've long owned Broken Sword 1 and 2 and been wanting to play them, but I see that there is also a Director's Cut version out on GOG. Should I play that, or the original released version first? I've heard that there are some distinct differences.

I enjoyed the directors cut more than the original. It took out the parts I hated and added more story.

I preferred the director's cut, too, except for the editing of some suggestive dialogue in one part (the clinic) that I thought was funny. Otherwise, I'm with Ana.

I liked BOTH versions but I think I still prefer the original thumbsup

[Some of the puzzles were made easier in the Director's Cut version.]

If the puzzles were easier in the DC, that's definitely the version I'm getting. razz

The adventure games I've enjoyed, I enjoy because of their story. I prefer easy-to-figure-out puzzles. razz

Oh, I'm a "story" person too, Drizzt smile

But both versions of the game are good so I hope you enjoy yourself with whichever one you choose thumbsup

I got both games on GOG now, so I will probably start playing them, along with all other games I'm playing. smile
